Naval Virtual Prototyping
became an important tool for engineering and testing parts in virtual environments before they are built.
Most times they are then optimised caused by new findings out of this process.

In 1989 Mr. Jens Cruse established directly after the naval architect co-op program his own business.
As a pioneer he started 3D CAD and developed the projects in virtual reality before they were built.
Today V-design is one of the premier companies who combine the traditional shipbuilding with the high tech computer tools.
The speciality is the creation of complicate and complex 3D CAD freeform surface models for the marine industry.
Once you have the 3D CAD model you can do a lot, see " What We Do".
